Don't really see a need for a freeway connection between Greenville and Kinston since traffic usually runs pretty smoothly along hwy 11 between them and I don't see the areas in Lenoir County growing enough within the next 20yrs to warrant a freeway. Raising the speed limit to 60mph helped out a lot.

Hopefully this project will ease congestion on Greenville Blvd though. It's always a pain going down that road.

It would help some but most of Greenville's traffic is from and to destinations in-town, compared to multiple major regional destinations around RDU. Expanding mass transit and maybe making it free to use like Boone did with Appalcart would go much further in easing congestion.

I see it as a highway not TO Kinston, but past Kinston. i.e. to New Bern, Wilmington, MHC etc.

Not saying that is justifiable though.
